and one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the 
penetration being made with a No. 2 Needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (981/2) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (31/2) centimeters in depth and is 
held at a temperature of three hundred twenty-flve 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then 
it shall have lost not over two (2) per cent by 
weight and the penetration of the residue thus ob- 
tained shall be not less than one-half (1/2) of the 
penetration before such heating, said penetration 
being determined as herein prescribed. The said 
reluied asphalt shall have a ductility of not less 
than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) millimeters 
penetration determined as herein prescribed, said 
ductility being determined by elongating a briquette, 
Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a uniform rate 
of five (5; centimeters per minute at a temperature 
of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said 
flux shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 
The flux shall have a specific gravity of not less 
than ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not 
more than one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit as com- 
pared with water at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, and v/hen tested in a Cleveland Open 
Cup Oil Tester, it shall not fiash below a tempera- 
ture of three hundred eighty (380) degrees Fah- 
renheit and when fifty (50) grams of the said flux 
is heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(5%) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
not have lost over three (3) per cent by weight. 
The flux shall have a penetration of not less than 
thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration being, 
made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty (50) 
grams acting for one (1) second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any 
two (2) of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux 
must be used, provided that the mixture of refined 
asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of the 
refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt cement 
shall contain not less than sixty (60;> per cent by 
weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said 
asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and heat- 
ing the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said 
flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5y2) centimeters in di- 



ameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall have lost not more than 
three (3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, shall be not less 
than one-half of the penetration before such heat- 
ing. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said lime- 
stone, or other stone, the said sand or the said 
limestone screenings and the said asphalt cement. 
The said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) 
per cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone, or other stone. The said mixture shall be 
spread on the said concrete foundation, and while 
in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled to an 
even surface with a self-propelled roller weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder course 
after ultimate compression shall have a thickness 
of two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and one and one-half (1%) inches 
below the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately 
mixed with the said asphalt cement. The said mix- 
ture shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in 
carbon disulphide, eleven (11) per cent; said levi- 
gated stone fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which 
can pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass 
a two hundred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) 
per cent; said sand which can pass a forty (40) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh 
sieve, thirty-six (36) per cent; said sand which can 
pass a ten (10) mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty 
(40) mesh sieve, twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and cannot 
pass a ten (10) mesh sieve, two (2) per cent. The 
said mixture shall be spread at a temperature of 
not less than two hundred sixty (260) degrees 
Fahrenheit to an even surface and to such a depth 
that after ultimate compression, it shall have a 
thickness of one and one-half (1%) inches. The 
wearing course, while still hot and plastic, shall be 
rolled with a self-propelled roller weighing not less 
than ten (10) tons. Natural hydraulic cement shall 
then be spread over the wearing course in such 
quantity that one (1) barrel of natural hydraulic

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, Portland cement or the 
finely divided mineral matter self contained in the 
refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used and 
requires refining, it shall be heated to a temperature 
of not over four hundred fifty (450) degrees Fahren- 
heit until all water and light oils have been driven 
off. At least ninety-eight and one-half (98y2) per 
cent of the bitumen contained in the said refined 
asphalt which is soluble in carbon disulphide shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight re- 
duction of asphaltic petroleum until the refined 
asphalt has a consistency not softer than seven {1^ 
millimeters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (21/2) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 Needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (98 y^) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (5y2) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held 
at a temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half (y2) of the penetration 
before such heating, said penetration being deter- 
mined as herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) 
centimeters at five (5) millimeters penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form, of 
said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 



be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not less than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one 
and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5y2) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3y2) centimeters 
in depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall not have lost over three (3) 
per cent by weight. The flux shall have a penetra- 
tion of not less than thirty-five (35) millimeters, the 
penetration being made with a No. 2 needle weighted 
with fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) second, the 
material being tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any 
two (2) of said refined asphalts and said flux, if 
flux must be used, provided that the mixture of re- 
fined asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of 
the refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt 
cement shall contain not less than sixty (60) per 
cent by weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The 
said asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and 
heating the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the 
said flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than 
two hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3y2) centimeters 
in depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall have lost not more than 
three (3) per cent by weight, and the penetration. 
determined as herein prescribed, shall be not less 
than one-half (%) of the penetration before such 
heating. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said lime- 
stone, or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 
said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone, or other stone. The said mixture shall be 
spread on the said concrete foundation, and while in 
a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled to an 
even surface with a self-propelled roller weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder course 
after ultimate compression shall have a thickness of 
two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall be

GAS, OIL AND ELECTRIC LIGHT. 



In the Matter of an Investigation of the Cause of the 
Breakdown of the City's Street-lighting System. 

The Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric Light sub- 
mitted the following report: 

Chicago, April 4, 1930. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric Light, 
having been directed by an order passed by the City 
Council on March 31, 1930, page 2611, to make an 
investigation of the cause of the breakdown of the 
City's street-lighting system and the failure of ade- 
quate maintenance, and to report its findings at the 
next regular meeting of the City Council, beg leave 
to report as follows : 

On Friday, April 4, 1930, Mr. Kennedy, Com- 
missioner of Gas and Electricity, appeared before 
your committee, in response to the committee's 
invitation, and made a detailed statement relative 
to the operations of the Department of Gas and 
Electricity and submitted substantiating records 
which are epitomized in the attached comparative 
statement of appropriations for the Department of 
Gas and Electricity, the number of its employes 
and the number of electric light and traffic con- 
trol units maintained by it, for the years 1926- 
1930, which statement is hereby made a part of 
this report. 

These records show that while the electric light 
units maintained by the Department of Gas and 
Electricity have increased more than 20% since 
1926 and the plant is older and for that reason 
more susceptible to breakdown, the manpower in 
the department for maintaining these units in 
service is today more than 27% less than it was 



in 1926; and that the department's 1930 appro- 
priation is $363,039.46 less than its 1926 appro- 
priation and $1,018,703.00 less than its 1929 
appropriation. 

Your committee is of the opinion that in view 
of the drastic retrenchment in its operations made 
necessary by the reduction in its 1930 appro- 
priation, the Department of Gas and Electricity 
is functioning as efficiently as reasonably can be 
expected, and that the Commissioner of Gas and 
Electricity is making an honest effort, as he 
pledged the Committee on Finance to do, to co- 
operate in carrying out the economy program 
forced upon the City Council by a shortage of 
municipal revenues. 

Your comm-ittee further is of the opinion that 
no improvement in the street lighting service of 
the City, which today is bad to say the least, may 
be looKed forward to until and unless the Depart- 
ment of Gas and Electricity is enabled to increase 
its manpower. 

The Commissioner advised your committee that 
his department would require an additional appro- 
priation of at least $317,000.00 to enable it to 
keep the street lights in operation during the re- 
mainder of the year 1930. Recognizing, as it does, 
the importance of street lighting to the welfare 
and safety of the people of Chicago and the im- 
perative need for improvement in this service, 
your committee respectfully recommends that the 
Committee on Finance draft the necessary ordi- 
nance to provide the Department of Gas and Elec- 
tricity with a supplemental appropriation, out of 
miscellaneous revenues, of $317,000.00. 

This additional appropriation, if made, would 
approximately bring the department's 1930 appro- 
priations up to the figure of the 1926 appro- 
priations, which the members of the City Council 
understood was the basis of the 1930 appro- 
priations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) J. M. Arvey, 

Chairman. 



Alderman Arvey moved that said report be referred 
to the Committee on Finance. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the statement referred to in the 
foregoing report:

Commendation of A. R. Marriott, President of the Chi- 
cago Title & Trust Co., for Circulating the True 
Facts Concerning Chicago^s Financial Status. 

Alderman Nelson presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, The breakdown of tax collecting 
machinery of Cook County, due to the manipulation 
of certain interests desirous of evading the payment 
of taxes on an equitable and uniform basis, has not 
only prevented the collection of taxes for a period 
now of two years, but also has seriously embarrassed 
the City of Chicago and all other local governments 
in Cook County in the administration of their affairs; 
and 

Whereas, Certain of our own Chicago daily news- 
papers have seen fit, in glaring headlines, to an- 
nounce that Chicago is "broke", with the result that 
the front pages of the leading newspapers through- 
out the country have given publicity to such state- 
ment, thereby injuring not only the reputation of 
our City, but also directly working great harm to 
every business interest and the mass of people 
within our City; and 

Whereas, It is refreshing to note that A. R. 
Marriott, President of the Chicago Title & Trust 
Company, has issued a circular containing an article 
taken from the Daily Bond Buyer, an authority on 
investment securities, which statement sets out the 
fact that Chicago, while lacking in actual cash, is not 
"broke", but on the contrary has a bonded indebted- 
ness only one-third as large as New York City, one- 
half as large as Philadelphia, and decidedly less than 
Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, 
Newark, Minneapolis, and other cities; and 

Whereas, Misrepresentation of our City's financial 
and other conditions is unquestionably responsible 
in part for the unemployment that exists here today, 
which is injurious not only to wage earners, but also 
to every business interest located here; therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That this City Council in regular session 
assembled, do hereby commend Mr. A. R. Marriott, 
President of the Chicago Title & Trust Company, for 
his action in circulating the facts as to our financial 
status and that we do hereby call upon all of the 
press of Chicago, all of its civic organizations, labor 
and business interests, to advertise the truth re- 
garding our finances, business, working and living 
conditions throughout our nation and the world, in 
order that each may do his or her part in over-

ameter. 

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, Portland cement or the 
finely divided mineral matter self contained in the 
refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and the 
mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined as- 
phalt has a consistency not softer than seven (7) 
millimeters penetration and not harder than two 
and one-half (2yo) millimeters penetration, the 
penetration being made with a No. 2 Needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (771 degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (SVo) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (31/2) centimeters in depth and is 
held at a temperature of three hundred twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (51 hours, then 
it shall have lost not over two (2) per cent by 
weight and the penetration of the residue thus ob- 
tained shall be not less than one-half (%) of the 
penetration before such heating, said penetration 
being determined as herein prescribed. The said 
refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not less 
than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) millimeters 
penetration determined as herein prescribed, said 
ductility being determined by elongating a briquette, 



Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a uniform rate 
of five (5) centimeters per minute at a temperature 
of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said 
flux shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 
The flux shall have a specific gravity of not less 
than ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not 
more than one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit as com- 
pared with water at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, and when tested in a Cleveland Open 
Cup Oil Tester, it shall not flash below a tempera- 
ture of three hundred eighty (380) degrees Fah- 
renheit and when fifty (50) grams of the said flux 
is heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(5y2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
not have lost over three (3) per cent by weight. 
The flux shall have a penetration of not less than 
twenty (20) millimeters, the penetration being 
made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty (50) 
grams actin^for one (1) second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any 
two (2) of said refined asphalts and said fiux, if flux 
must be used, provided that the mixture of refined 
asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of the 
refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt cement 
shall contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by 
weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said 
asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and heat- 
ing the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said 
flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2y2) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in di- 
ameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall have lost not more than 
three (3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, shall be not less 
than one-half {V2) of the penetration before such 
heating. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said lime- 
stone, or other stone, the said sand or the said 
limestone screenings and the said asphalt cement. 
The said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) 
per cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION. 



Statement of the Citizens' Traction Settlement 

Committee Concerning the I*roposed 

Traction Ordinance. 

The Committee on Local Transportation submitted 
the following report: 

Chicago, April 29, 1930. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chicago 
in City Council Assembled: 

Your Committee on Local Transportation having 
had under consideration the Traction Ordinance, beg 
leave to submit a statement and criticism of the 
Wilkerson Citizens' Traction Settlement Committee 
on the new Traction Ordinance, and recommend that 
it be published and filed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Jos. B. MgDonough, 

Chairman. 
Alderman McDonough moved to concur in said re- 
port. 

No request being made by any two Aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon until the next regular meeting, and the ques- 
tion being put, 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the statement recommended for 
publication in the foregoing report: 

Eon. Joseph B. McDonough, Chairman, and Members 
of the Committee on Local Transportation of the 
City Council of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — The submission by your Subcom- 
mittee of the draft of an ordinance for a compre- 
hensive unified local transportation system and the 
progress made toward agreement between the City 
and the various interests owning the present trans- 
portation properties brings Chicago nearer an ade- 
quate solution of the traction question than fever 
before. Years of effort to attain the ideal of unifi- 
cation of surface and rapid transit lines on the 
basis of a single fare with the broadest transfer 
privileges, promises to bear fruit in a plan which 
will be acceptable to the people of Chicago. 

The transportation ordinance you have before you 
represents nearly two years of work on the part of 
the City, representative business and civic leaders, 
engineers, legal authorities, bankers and the prac- 
tical viewpoint of those whose business it is to 
operate transportation companies. It is a composite 
result, reconciling many points of view, and repre- 
sents the best thought available as to the basis on 
which Chicago can have a comprehensive unified 
transportation system devised to grow with the 
City's needs for the years to come. 

The Citizens' Committee cannot compliment too 
highly the diligent work of the City's representatives 
in bringing this situation to its present state. It 
took unlimited patience to persevere firmly while 
the vast, seemingly unending problems were met, 
one after another, and until a basis could be found 
upon which there could be substantial agreement. 

The Citizens' Traction Settlement Committee, 
since its appointment by Honorable James H. 
Wilkerson, Judge of the United States District 



2780 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



April 30, 1930. 



Court, in December, 1928. has taken a keen interest 
and willingly attempted, as it was called upon, to be 
helpful in' each step toward securing a settlement. 
The function of the Committee, as stated by Judge 
Wilkerson. was to co-operate with the City Counc-il 
and the companies in the effort to find a solution 
acceptable to both and for the best interests of the 
people of Chicago. Now that the end of negotiations 
apparently is in sight and a decision by your Com- 
mittee, by the City Council and in turn by the 
people of Chicago, through a referendum vote, is 
near, this Committee desires to be of whatever 
assistance it can in the task immediately at hand. 

It is not to be thougfit that there will be complete 
agreement with all the provisions of the franchise. 
In such a complex problem, involving so many con- 
flicting viewpoints, there are bound to be. and have 
been, honest differences of opinion, and also some 
selfishness. But in the settlement of a problem, m- 
volving the Citv as a whole and in which there must 
be a sincere effort to look far ahead into the future, 
self interest must give way. 

In the consideration of the pending ordinance by 
your committee, it is important to remember that 
while the draft in the form and phraseology m 
which it is presented to your honorable body is new. 
the essential principles embodied in it are not new. 
Unification of the properties and a terminable or 
indeterminate permit have been discussed m Chicago 
for at least fifteen years; and every report by trans- 
portation experts and engineers has recommended 
both. Practically every principle embodied in tlie 
ordinance has been discussed for many months, in 
the newspapers and by interested groups. The ordi- 
nance is based upon legislation agreed upon by the 
City Council more than a year ago and enacted by 
the General Assembly at Springfield last Spring with 
the approval of City authorities and no substantial 
opposition from any source. 

In the opinion of this committee, a settlement 
along the general lines proposed in this ordinance 
will lay the foundation for the most eiTicient and 
satisfactory locar transportation system in any city 
in the world. The ordinance provides, among other 
things, for the following: 

1. The operation of all local transportation 
facilities— rapid transit lines, street cars and 
buses — by one operating organization, eliminating 
duplication of service and wasteful competition. 

2 The expenditure of $2.00.000,000.00 for ex- 
tensions and betterments of the transportation 
properties within ten years. Of this amount 
$65,000,000.00 will be expended in three years. 
During the ten-year period the City will expend 
not less than $85,000,000.00 in the construction of 
subways. 

3. The prompt construction of initial subways 
in the congested central business area by the City 
through use of the City Traction Fund and by 
special assessment, at an estimated cost of 
$85,000,000.00 to be followed by such additional 
subways as the City Council may authorize. In 
these subways the transportation company is to 
construct, equip and operate its tracks as a part 
of the rapid transit system. 

4. Both rapid transit and surface lines service 
will be available on the basis of one fare. For ten 
cents a passenger can ride on both elevated and 
surface cars, or for seven cents he can go any- 
where on the surface lines as at present. Regu- 
lation of fares and service will be by a local 



transit commission, as authorized by the enabling 
legislation. 

5. Payment of 3 per cent of the gross revenue 
of the company into a City Transit Trust Fund, 
which shall be used for subways, amortization 
and other purposes; directly beneficial to the car 
riders from whom it really comes. The 3 per 
cent compensation to the City, we have been 
advised by the engineers, will substantially equal 
and may exceed 55% of the net receipts. 

6. The company must establish a pension sys- 
tem and maintain health and life insurance for its 
employes. 

7. The new company will operate under a 
terminable permit, but the City reserves the right 
to purchase the properties at any time on six 
months' notice or to designate a purchaser, the 
purchase price to be based upon the value of the 
properties as fixed in the ordinance, plus new 
money expended for improvements and extensions. 

8. Failure to comply with any of the pro- 
visions of the ordinance or to provide the class of 
service required of it, will make the company 
liable to proceedings in the courts to enforce the 
ordinance or prevent non-observance or violation 
of its requirements. 

This committee believes that these provisions are 
equitable both to the owners of the properties and to 
the City and that a settlement based on them will be 
sound and workable. Without committing itself 
upon the details of the provisions of the ordinance 
or the phraseology of the various sections, it desires 
to express approval of the plan as provided in the 
ordinance. 

A settlement at this time will not only mean more 
adequate transportation, with its saving in time and 
money, better equipment, additional and quicker 
service, but also the employment of a larger number 
of our people in the work of construction. 

It will take considerable effort on the part of every 
citizen and organization which has Chicago's welfare 
at heart to arouse public interest to the point that 
the situation be settled now, when the time and 
conditions are so opportune. Even when the City 
Council has acted, the voters of Chicago will have 
to pass upon the ordinance at a referendum election 
and a few "catch phrases" such as are so often 
devised by those who have a political or selfish 
interest to serve, might end this chance for a favor- 
able settlement of our local transportation problem. 

The Citizens Traction Settlement Committee is 
ready and willing to assist your committee in every 
way possible and have instructed its attorneys, as 
suggested, to be present at all hearings to offer sug- 
gestions or advice when called upon. 
Respectfully submitted, 
Citizens' Traction iSettlbjnient Committee,

"The locust trees, which make this section of

planted by 'Mrs. Peter Crawford from pods that 
she procured from Old Fort Dearborn. The Craw- 
ford farm extended from 22nd street on the north 
to 26th street on the south, the present Crawford 
avenue on the east to Kostner avenue on the west 
and was acquired by Peter Crawford on a Canal 
Grant from the government. There were few 
trees on the place and Mrs. Crawford decided she 
wanted some; so one day, hitching up the horse 
she drove to Fort Dearborn and with the help of 
some small boys filled some sacks with pods that 
had fallen from the locust trees at the Fort, these 
she planted in a spot on the farm at about where 
Ogden and Karlov avenues meet. When the Craw- 
ford Subdivision was laid out the young trees were 
transplanted along the parkways and have been 
a source of beauty for so many years. If some- 
thing can be done to preserve them it should be 
done before they have all died."

is the defendant in a law suit in the Municipal 
Court of Chicago, entitled Chicago Show Printing 
Company, a corporation vs. Michael J. Faherty, Mun- 
icipal Court Number 2006047, and it appears that

Faherty, actually in his capacity as President of 
the Board of Local Improvements of the City of 
Chicago, which obligation appears to be, in fact, 
the obligation of the City of Chicago: and 

Whereas, It appears that the proof will show 
that the obligation set forth in the statement of 
claim in this case was understood, by the plaintiff 
therein, to be the obligation of the Citv of Chicago; 
and 

■Whereas. According to the statutes of the 
State of Illinois, the Corporation Counsel is em- 
powered to act as the legal advisor of the several

City is sued personally, even if the cause of action 
arose out of his official duties, the Corporation 
Counsel shall apjjear for sucli officer or employe 
only in case the City Council directs him so to do; 
therefore, it is hereby 

Ordered, That the Corporation Counsel proceed

ner to conduct the defense in said suit.

Questionnaire on a Study of Chicago's Water

Alderman Kaindl presented the following resolution, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Whereas, For the past eighteen months, the Sub- 
Committee of the Finance Committee on Water 
Bureau Survey have been engaged in a study of 
Chicago's Water Supply System; and 

Whereas, The Sub-Committee's report, dealing 
with the first phase of its investigation — control and 
rate — is now being printed and will be the subject 
of discussion at public hearings within a few days; 
and 

Whereas, The Chicago newspapers have already 
carried the story of the Sub-Committee's report, as 
a result of which various viewpoints — not altogether 
warranted by the text of the report — have been 
developed; therefore be it 

Resolved. That the following questions are sub- 
mitted for the consideration of His Honor the Mayor, 
Commissioner of Public Works, members of the City 
Council, civic organizations and all others interested, 
preliminary to the acceptance of invitations to ap- 
pear before and take part in public discussions upon 
the merits of the Sub-Committee's i-eport : 

1. Is it the Governmental intent of the City to sell 
its water? 

2. If so. is the principle of recording water at the 
points of origin and disposal correct? 

3. Upon what factor or factors should the water 
rate be set? 

i. Where municipally owned and operated, should 
it not be fixed upon the factor of cost? 

5. How does the City Council define such cost? 

6. Would not the correct method be to base the 
rates upon the annual appropriation passed by the 
City Council for the operation of the Water Bureau 
figured against the total pumpage of the previous 
year, as a result of which water could be sold at 
cost to the entire community, or at the equivalent 
of a 4c rate? 

7. Does this, or does it not, indicate tliat volume 
censumption would be greatly encouraged and stim- 
ulated, whicli would I'pflect in a still further reduc- 
tion in rate to the small as well as the large user? 

8. Where can it be shown that a recording device 
for measuring water in any way affects the cost of 
water to the user? 

9. Shall it be the policy of the City in the future 
to dispose of any portion of its water supply free of 
charge to any class of its citizenry, and, if so, should 
not public officials having jurisdiction in the prem-

ises give thought to that element of the community 
for whom the payment of water taxes is a hardship? 

10. In the event it should be decided to allow free 

water to such persons how much should be allowed 
and how can the quantity be determined without 
recording? 

11. Should it develop that it shall not be the 
policy of the City to sell its water by the recording 
method, what financial plan shall be developed, based 
upon the flat rate basis, for the future operation of 
the Water Bureau upon a self sustaining basis, or 
how shall the burden of upkeep be divided as be- 
tween the metered and unmetered water users?

All employes, except those in the skilled labor

per diem basis, shall be given a vacation during 
the year 1930 of two (2) weeks with pay at rates 
specified for the respective positions in the Annual 
Appropriation Bill for that year, provided such 
employes have been engaged in the City's service 
at least one year prior to such vacation. If the 
respective department heads think it advisable, 
vacations may be divided into two periods. 

All employes in the skilled labor and labor 
service classes, who are employed on a per diem 
basis, shall be given a vacation during the year 
1930 of eleven (11) work days with pay at rates

per diem basis, may be given leave of absence 
with pay for periods not exceeding fifteen (15) 
days in the aggregate during the year 1930 on 
account of sickness or other cause for absence 
which may be considered by the Department head 
a sufficient and legitimate excuse for the employe's 
failure to be present and in attendance upon his 
duties; provided, that the reason for the absence 
and the good faith of the employe in making the 
application for such leave shall be shown to the 
department head by such reasonable evidence as 
he may require, either by a physician's certificate, 
personal affidavit or other means; and, provided, 
further, that whenever a leave of absence on 
account of sickness for over three (3) days is 
applied for, such application must be made to the 
head of the department in writing within said 
three (3) days accompanied by a certificate from 
a physician stating the nature and severity of such 
sickness. 

Vacation and sick-leave periods may be com- 
bined, if the long-continued sickness of the em- 
ploye, in the judgment of the department head, 
warrants such course; and, be it further 
rants such course; and, be it further 
Ordered, That there shall be exempt from the 
effect and operation of this order the officers and 
employes of the Board of Education, the Chicago 
Library, the Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium, the
